9780954264895: The Firm

Almost by accident, Jocelyn Bain Hogg was invited for a night on the town with a couple of geezers. He took a few snaps; the geezers liked them. Then they invited him to take a few more of their friends. What followed was the first comprehensive and highly intimate record of the faces of the British criminal underworld, the world of the Krays, the world of The Firm.

From the Publisher:

From their nightclubs and strip-joints, to their boardrooms and bathrooms, these portraits of the underworld reflect the masonry of London's East End, where members are elected for their very particular prowess and skills. Old-fashioned rules apply: friends and family first, no swearing in front of the ladies, and, above all, never grass. This network extends across the country. It is about freedom and incarceration, loyalty and betrayal, violence and camaraderie.

But things are changing for the British gangster. Ex-KGB mafiosi are taking over areas such as prostitution, gambling and drugs; the surviving Kray confederates are writing their memoirs and making personal appearances at film premieres and book signings. The new breed like Dave Courtney are taking every opportunity to use the media for self-publicity, giving lectures across the country, writing autobiographies and film scripts.

These photographs capture every facet of the life of the modern villain: from public appearances to mysterious 'disappearances'; from members-only bare-knuckle fights to the astonishingly huge popular appeal of a Kray family funeral.
